It is said that bad things happen in threesomes ,we found mice in the trailer after the winter storage and it took us 2 days to get rid of them,as we were on the way to Jim’s Tires in Canon City we blew a tire just few miles fro the shop ,one of the two tires that were to be replaced and one of the two batteries gave up….it was a rough start….but now we are good and do not expect any more problems.
On our first night in Mountaindale C.G near Colorado Springs we experienced a strong storm with hale,luckily we were already settled down and could watch the storm from the window.
In the following day it was like nothing happened and we woke up to a beautiful day
and decided to take a train ride to the Royal Gorge,it takes 2 hours and follows the Arkansas River all the way ,then passes under the Royal Gorge bridge,the scenery was just exceptional.
Although we had designated seats it was possible to walk to the open carriage and have a gorgeous view all over the gorge
There were a few small waterfalls along the route and the train stewardess warned us to get the cameras ready just before we got to see them.
Getting back to the depot we found out that in the park close by an event is going on,some music food and beer,but before going there we decided to eat our food and not be tempted to grab some fast food,a great place near the river was just perfect.
Later in the park we had fantastic cold beer while listening to the band.
On the way back we stopped and soaked in Hot Pools where the clothes were optional ,and that is why I have no pictures to show….it was a great finally to a great day and all the problems were just forgotten.
It was awesome driving “home” at the evening when the sun is low surrounded by beautiful views and colors while Frank Sinatra is singing “I did it my way” ….
